TORN BETWEEN DUTY AND DESIRE
Covert operations expert Nash Brennon has spent the last eight years trying to forget Annie Gallagher, his former field partner and the only woman he ever loved. Annie betrayed him when he needed her most, then vanished without a trace. Now suddenly she's back in the game - this time as a suspected traitor and threat to national security.
Annie's son has been kidnapped by political terrorists. The price for his life? Assassinate a UN ambassador. When Nash and his group find her, the smoldering passion between Annie and the man she swore she'd never contact again blazes out of control. But can Nash trust her? The stakes couldn?t be higher: Their enemy's endgame is personal, and one false move could cost them their lives.
My thoughts: I started this book 3 times - I kept it as my purse book forever (which explains why I had to keep starting it). I got to page 12 each time and then...back in my bag to wait for another chance. So finally I took it out of my bag and brought it boating with me one day!
Amazing! When I took the time to sit down with this book - it was a fast, gripping read! I was so impressed. Now that I sat down with it - I read it in one day!!! So...
The characters are great, I want to meet each one of them! The story rolls right along, holding you in your chair the whole time. I found myself on an emotional roller coaster with Annie as we tried to save her son's life and keep her life from falling apart on so many levels! The relationship with Nash is heartbreaking and hopeful. As always, I am looking for "the ending" I have pictured in my mind for the whole story and in this book I was thrilled to see it come through! Lots of twists and turns, intrigue and betrayal from fronts you would never expect. If you like mystery/espionage you should check this one out! I plan to get Dangerous Desires and Desperate Deeds too!
